In that case, I suppose you can't go too wrong getting one and seeing what kind of performance/durability you get from it. After switching to Octanes after using xxx-stiff Koho shafts, I found that I had a lot more power in my shot than I expected and had a much easier time lifting the puck and getting it closer to where I wanted it to go. I expect you will probably enjoy using them if you go for one. Just be prepared for it to break in spectacular style. I almost took a teammates head off in training once when I put a 1 foot + crack down the shaft and the blade flew across the hall (at least 20 feet). I laughed a bit, he didn't
